Nick Diener of THE SWELLERS will support fellow Flint Local 432 veteran and Search and Rescue Records alum Craig Owens of CHIODOS and CINEMATIC SUNRISE as the singer headlines an intimate acoustic set at Premier Indoor Sports in THE SWELLERS’ hometown of Fenton, Michigan on Friday, Aug. 15. Tickets are $10 adv. or $12 at door and can be purchased beforehand at http://startfinish.bigcartel.com.

The show, part of Flint-area DIY label Start/Finish Records’ birthday show, unites bands and artists from throughout Michigan who have left their mark on the regional scene.

THE SWELLERS have toured the U.S. and Canada at a breakneck pace this year, supporting last year’s MY EVEREST, released on Search and Rescue Records. The band has been writing new material between tours and anticipate another full-length in the very near future.

Doors are at 5:00 p.m.
